What Customers Say

“We have been using with great satisfaction Print Manager Plus for more than 9 years. It has solved the management of our school printers. The client support is outstanding! Yes, it does seem over enthusiastic but these our observations when asked.”

— Leclerc institution

“When I first started implementing PMP, I had it set to just track all of the print jobs in one school on the print server without any restrictions. After a couple of days, I ran the detailed history by user report and looked at the generic student account to see what they have been printing. Needless to say, I were shocked to see the unnecessary and excessive printing they were doing. Specifically, on one of the websites they use for educational games, at the end of one of the online activities it has a big button that says print. What students were doing was clicking on the print button, and then they would type in a random number in the copies box and click print. One print job we saw that was sent to the printer had 8,761 copies sent to it! Thankfully, the printer ran out of paper after about 200 pages printed, but it was still a waste of paper and toner.

I also noticed that in the PMP report, the title of the print job was simply called, "flash" so I set a restriction to deny printing the title of the document titled flash. The very next day, I ran the Summary of Denied printing for all users report and saw that PMP restricted a 6,532 page print job from that same user account with the print job title, flash.

Since then, we have added a few more restrictions on the generic student account and in the past two months that PMP has been "overseeing" that generic student account, it has restricted 17,256 pages from being printed. Needless to say, PMP has been wonderful in restricting excessive printing in the district!”

— KK Waterloo Community School District

“PMP has helped save us money from our IT budget by being able to select different printing costs for individual printers. This has enabled us to better control our higher cost printers. Before PMP was installed our students were abusing colour printing which was costing us more and more each week. Now that we are able to control this they are cutting down on their printing and even in some cases reverting to duplex printing. This has helped us in order to allow us to buy new servers for this summer.”Steve Roach, East Devon College (Tiverton, Devon)

“We couldn’t afford technology upgrades for our school. After installing Print Manager Plus we cut our printing costs in half - from £24,000 to around £12,000 and are now able to afford upgrades.” — Kevin Bowker, The King’s Academy (Middlesbrough)

“Print Manager Plus gave us the ability to make student and teacher accountable for what they print and how much. Users are now pausing before they print and with the ability to set limits to print jobs, the 100 page books that were being sent are a thing of the past. Print Manager Plus is a great product for taking back control over spiraling print cost and saving the environment from wasteful printing.”Administrator, Wesley Chapel High School

What Reviews Say

“PMP is a perfect complement to Windows' built-in printer management features... In larger organizations, though, the software licenses will tend to pay for themselves because organizations using Print Manager Plus will save money each month as excessive printing is gradually reduced.” — TechRepublic Review by Brien M. Posey MCSE

“Overall, I found Print Manager Plus very easy to install and manage. …for schools, universities or facilities houses which charge for a service it could be a real boon. Recommendation is mandatory.” — PC-PRO Magazine Review by Jon Honeyball

“We are now using up much fewer consumables (when the lowest negotiated price for an original brand toner cartridge For a Brother HL2060 printer is 85 Euros!) Enormous savings on paper (saving between 200/300 reams per month!) Instead of repairing /servicing the printers twice a year average, now it’s only once a year. Students are now more responsible (they don’t blindly press the Print button any more without checking the print preview first).

“To give you an idea of the total saved in the last year: up to 10.000 Euros. That’s without including the savings of around 4200 Euros on printer repair and maintenance on 14 Brother Laser machines alone, ( fusers, ceramic heaters etc every 120.000 pages). The savings have been just about everywhere: Consumables, paper, printer down time, administrator time…”Mr A. Mghazli, Systems Administrator, Jeanne d’Arc Technical College (France)

What Customers Say

"We implemented Print Manager Plus to assess our printing operations and develop a plan to reduce cost. The software was easy to install and setup on our server. We were then able to look at each individual printer costs and determine that we could save about $2,000 per year just by moving users to the most cost effective printers.

"We are very happy with this product and will implement it in our Tallahassee office this coming budget year. It's a stable and very easy to use along with great support." — Chris Noyes, I.S. Technical Specialist, Florida League of Cities
